Consciousness and Materialism

Really good stuff from a great Christian writer and wide-ranging reader and thinker, Alan Jacobs (can’t help saying it again: I loved the remarkable book Original Sin). Turns out evolutionary scientists don’t really know how consciousness is possible in a materialistic universe. Calling consciousness an “emergent property” is something of a feint.
